Why Choose Us?

There are so many reasons to choose Turners Falls High School for your child’s education. We strive to educate the whole child, rather than simply teach the core knowledge that will allow the child to gain access to college. Our well-rounded education and small-town values allow our students to grow in many ways.

Four-Year Plan

Before entering 9th grade, each student works with his or her parents and guidance counselor to formulate a four-year plan. This plan requires students to lay out an individualized plan for graduation, allowing them to choose a college-bound graduation pathway or a core graduation pathway based on their needs and desires.

Varied Course Offerings

Personal finance, marketing, and leadership courses are just a few of our specialized offerings that allow students to start on their future pathways while in high school. We teach personal responsibility and resourcefulness while students are still living in the security of their parents’ households, something unique to young adults of today.
